Photo Bird Race (17) Merops apiaster – Oenanthe oenanthe
A nice surprise was a flock of Merops apiaster (Bee eater – Μελισσοφάγος) which visited Vasilika village very early in the morning of 22/4.
Although its name, its diet includes bees in a percentage less than 30 %. An example of its prey variety, is the below photo.
